Bead Peeps Swap N Hop 2017 Swap Goodies Reveal

Our partner's Swap goodies arrived today!  There was a fantastic mix of fun things, but first check out what we sent our partner Barbara Price of ColorCopia Jewelry Designs on her Instagram page here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BRZSak4h9xa/?taken-by=colorcopiajewelrydesigns

We sent her an earthy mix of colors like coppers, purples and sand opals in beads such as garnets, crystals, mother-of-pearl and druzies.  Our partner Barbara works extensively with bold and colorful elements, we wanted to challenge her by sending a color palette with out-of-the-box textures and colors!  As part of the Swap N' Hop rules, we also sent handmade components like a hand forged copper pendant by Deborah, and lampwork floret headpins by Catherine.  We also sent antique copper plated chain, charms and findings.

Now on to the mix that arrived from our partner!!  Barbara works loves to collect and work with handmade lampwork beads, so she sent a lovely mix of lampwork in turquoises, blues and greens.  Artisans represented in this lampwork collection include Brenda Chamberlin, Joan Fogarty, Patty Thomas and Regis Teixera.  Our Swap partner also sent some fun findings in sterling silver.  Thank you Barbara, we're excited to work with all of these!

We already have some ideas on what we're doing with this colorful mix, so stay tuned for the Swap N Hop reveal this April 8th!
